Pennsylvania Primary

Today is the Pennsylvania primary election. Here at Penn State we have had visits from Barack Obama and, in separate visits, from Hillary, Bill, and Chelsea Clinton.

In the New York Times this morning, Ariel Alexovich assembles the last-minute Hillary Clinton ad warning us of Osama, to which he adds a clip of Bill Clinton warning in 2004 against candidates using scare tactics and an Obama ad replying to the Hillary ad.

The heat, as depicted in Hillary Rodham Clinton's latest ad, includes national catastrophes like the Great Depression, Pearl Harbor, the gas crisis of the 1970s, Osama bin Laden and Hurricane Katrina -- all of which are shown in a dramatic video montage.
